For the sake of convenience, any fans who set their Ray Allen jerseys ablaze may want to keep that lighter handy. They may need it to burn their No. 34 jerseys soon. All right, put down that bottle of butane. The end of Paul Pierce's time with the Celtics is no more imminent now than it was at last season's trade deadline, when team president of basketball operations Danny Ainge reportedly was close to trading Pierce to the New Jersey Nets.

Paul Pierce says he is leaving his options open, may test free agency

Celtics Likely Looking Forward to Season Opener Against Ray Allen, Heat

It's no secret that the Celtics and the Heat have rapidly formed a rather heated rivalry over the past few years.

Wait Until Next Year

Wait until next year - if I had a dollar for every time I said that phrase, I would be rich today. Even in the worst of times for the Celtics, I just could never give up on them. It was always this year may have been bad, but wait until next year. The Celtics always bounce back. Times were great in the 60's when I first started following the Celtics. Every year was a championship...
